SEK International School Qatar is a candidate school* for Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorisation as an IB World School.
World Schools share a common philosophy and commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.*
Subject to IB authorisation, we plan to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). Through our multilingual international education curriculum, we ensure the readiness of our students to participate in a global world as active and creative learners, citizens and leaders.
Starting in September of 2013, SEK-Qatar will welcome approximately 200 early and primary school students. The figure is expected to grow to 600 pupils in 3 years as we gradually roll-out the full curriculum.
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
